On the first night the otherwordly person introduced himself as being from Orion. Let's remind ourselves that the objective of this project is, other than to document a case of experienced telepathic contact with an alien being, to try to determine whether the experience is purely human imagination or whether this is genuine telepathic contact with persons from outer space, Orion. In this section, let us look closer into their supposed home of origin and see if that can offer some clues.

Does Orion exist? - Recall that the alternative to this being real, is that this is purely imaginary. The first natural question, is, is Orion a real place? Of course we know that it is, and of course my own prior knowledge knew that Orion is the name of a real place, and logically my imagination may have preferred to involve an actual place than to make up some nonexistent place all of its own. If this were my imagination choosing to involve me in a conversation with experienced beings, then the psychology behind it would perhaps want these beings to be credible, so that my mind could allow itself to rest assured that they exist.

For what would be the purpose of imaginary conversations? Are imaginary conversations merely an anomaly, kind of like an arm that won't stop twitching, a twitch of the brain? Or do imaginary conversations serve a purpose, have a benefit, such as manufacturing a sense of companionship, or perhaps serving as an outlet for personal emotions and issues, or perhaps it merely serves as a stage for imaginary creativity which somehow got out of hand, where something imaginary crossed the line to where the mind can no longer distinguish between are they imaginary or may they be real?

Yet, had I been given the name of a place that is not known to exist, one may have argued that perhaps this were their name for a place that we humans do not know about. Or perhaps even our name for a place but so rare and rarely used that it doesn't even appear on internet search engines. So the place could still have existed, just not to our knowledge here on Earth. But at least we've got that far enough to say that yes, the origin world of these people is a place known to exist.

What is Orion like? - And this is when we need an Astronomer. Wikipedia - Orion (constellation) can help. Orion is a constellation with seven main stars, so the name applies to a group of stars not just one star. That is something I did not know prior to my literature search. Aha, seven of its stars have planets! That would have been another question to consider. Would Orion beings originate from the star itself (some make claims of ETs that live in stars themselves) or would a being as perceived need a planet to live on?

Alpha Orionis is Betelgeuse - and it is huge!

The Orion people have made references to there being lakes and other bodies of water in their home world (note that we do not assume that their water is H2O without specific indication, as other worlds could have lakes made of other liquids as well). This is the best clear indication I have that these beings would indeed have to come from some solid body in space, because a star could never hold lakes. Therefore if it were known that none of the stars of Orion have any planets or other solid bodies that could hold lakes, it would have been clear at this point that these Orion people I have perceived either are lying about their lakes, mistaken about their lakes, or that the beings themselves are nonexistent.

The Orion people have also made references to living under ground, which also implies that they originate from a solid body in space (note that some say that ETs are living on Earth in underground areas, and we do not know if they were referring to under ground in their home world Orion or perhaps here, so had it been that there is no way to dwell under ground in Orion, it could have still held true if they were referring to doing so here).

The seven main stars of the Orion constellation each appear at different distances from Earth: 243, 643, 724, 772, 800, 900, and 1359 light years from here respectively. One light year is the distance light travels in one year. Light travels approximately 300,000 meters per second, so in a year it travels 9x1012 meters, which is 9x109 kilometers or 1.5x1010 miles in one year. The closest star of Orion is 2x1012 kilometers or 1x1012 miles away and the farthest one is 1x1013 kilometers or 8x1012 miles away.

In the star sky, to us, the stars of Orion seem to be near one another. But considering their depth are they really a constellation? Are the Orion people from one of these main stars, or one of the other ones? If I had more astronomical information about the Orion region perhaps there could be something that would refute these contacts being real.

Could any region of Orion support life, but most importantly, life of the kind as I have seen? What I know of their world so far is that it has lakes and other water systems, but not necessarily H2O. But from looking at their anatomy, if these are beings composed of biological molecules, one would assume that they could not live in an environment with too much high energy solar radiation. Their planet would either have to be far enough from such a star, or have some sort of protective shielding such as our planet Earth has. High energy radiation causes ionization to chemical bonds which leads to all sorts of radical reactions where atoms whose electron was ejected by the high energy, begins to search for another atom's electron to steal, and in the process of stealing, several molecules will become damaged and altered. This is what in humans can cause cancer, when the DNA molecule is the one being robbed of an electron. Chemical assemblies of molecular life would have a hard time in an environment of high energy radiation.

The eyes of the Orion people are adapted for darkness and the Orion people have to stay away from our sun. They do make references to living under ground, so this does not exclude the possibility that their world has sunlight.

Several other planetary geological assumptions could be derived just by looking at their body. Concepts of pressure, gravity, geological stability, and more. I need to dedicate our next discussion entirely to their home world.

Update January 2012 - The Orion man told me that he is from the star Alpha Orionis and described the planets by that star. He gave specific astronomical and geological data. Note that humans have not discovered any planets by Alpha Orionis (the same star that is Betelgeuse), but the Orion man insists that there are some there.
